Picture Happy

Saturday, May 29, 2010

Thought it would be fun for a picture post this Memorial Day weekend!! I hope everyone is having a relaxing 3-day weekend, no matter if you are having a big cookout or avoiding one!! Haha :) We are so excited to see everything blooming and growing so beautifully!!



Peony- I transplanted it last year and it never bloomed, but it came up gorgeous this year!



I forget what this is, but the purple is very vivid! It's sort of a groundcover plant, which I don't normally like, but I don't think it's as invasive as some groundcover can be!



Poppy!! There were three blooms already, and there are 3 more coming up!! The blooms are fairly delicate, but this is such a beautiful orange!



Raspberries in the making!



Our veggie garden (L to R: peas, spinach, spinach, lettuce, lettuce, carrotts, broccoli, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers)



Peas- glamour shot!



One of my baby daylillies- I separate the huge clumps of daylillies each year and put the small ones in various places in our yard- this one did great- next year it will be huge and time to be split!



Have no idea what flower this is, and I really don't remember buying it, but it's a perennial, and there is this color of pink and a more rose pink, too! They are beautiful and self-cleaning, which is great because I don't have to pinch the old blooms to get new ones!



Banana, queen of our hearts and of the front yard!!

Hey! The purple flower is phlox (might be a creeping type if it's more of a groundcover), and the pink one is snapdragon. Beautiful flowers and your garden looks great - thank you for sharing them.

You are in my prayers daily!

I love the pictures of everything you have growing, particularly the peonies and the poppies (how's that for alliteration?) :)

I am glad you got to take a little trip to see your Grandparents. It's always good to get away for a little break from the norm!
